The CSA seal of approval testifies that high standards were applied in the manufacturing of a product. All Armor windows bear a permanent CSA label, confirming that they are CSA-certified. Furthermore, to ensure that Armor Series windows maintain their high-quality standards, CSA performs audits of our facilities to ensure our windows are manufactured to the same standards as tested.
NORTH AMERICAN FENESTRATION STANDARDS (NAFS)
In January of 2014, the National Building Code of Canada adopted the North American Fenestration Standards’ AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440-08 minimum performance requirement, which you should become familiar with if you are buying windows and doors in Canada. To satisfy this requirement, each of Armor’s window configurations is tested for air leakage, water infiltration, structural loading and forced entry. Armor Series windows have scored some of the highest results under this new standard.
